This program combines two certification programs into one five day course. It will provide practical knowledge on Change Management techniques as well as the Foundation™ and Practitioner™ certifications (two certifications, two exams).
Please note: The Change Management Foundation™ and Change Management Practitioner™ programs are available separately and not only as a single package as outlined above. In order to obtain your Change Management Professional (CMP) designation, you must successfully pass both exams.
Foundation™ – Getting the Basics (days 1-3)
During the first three days of this program, you will examine various Change Management techniques and models that can be effectively implemented within your organization. This structured approach will help you understand how to navigate change as an individual, as a member of a team/organization, and as a leader. The program is designed to explore the impact that change has on the following four major areas:
This certification program also prepares you to complete the APMG International Change Management Foundation™ exam. Given that a primary course goal is to achieve Foundation™ certification, the course textbook will be provided in advance of the workshop so that participants may begin studying right away. In addition, daily homework assignments (min. 2 hours a night) and practice exams will be provided. The Foundation™ level exam is taken at the end of the third day of the course.
Practitioner™ – Going beyond the Basics (days 4-5)
You will examine the application of various Change Management techniques in different contexts. The last two days of the program focuses on understanding how to apply and tailor change management guidance in a given organizational change situation. A successful Practitioner candidate should, with suitable direction, be able to start applying the change management approaches and techniques to a real change initiative; however they may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. His/her individual change management expertise, complexity of the change initiative and the support provided for the use of change management approaches in their work environment will all be factors that impact what the Practitioner can achieve.
This course will further develop some of the knowledge of Change Management learned during the Foundation™ certification. You will consider what learning is required and how best to design and deliver it. Then the course will provide an understanding of how Change Management fits into the Project Management environment. This course also prepares you for the APMG International Change Management Practitioner™ exam that will take place on the fifth day. Given that a primary course goal is to achieve both Foundation™ and Practitioner™ certification, the program textbook(s) will be provided in advance of the program so that participant may begin studying right away. In addition, daily homework/assignments (min. 2 hours a night), and practice quizzes will be provided.
